Fun on the farm, that describes the Florida Agricultural Museum. Visit our 1890 Florida Cracker home complete with rare heritage livestock (Cracker Cows, Cracker Horses and the Florida piney woods rooter hog). Chickens, ducks and a tame turkey greet our visitors before they depart on a tractor ride tour of the museum's historic farm buildings. Guided horseback riding is available by reservation. Horseback ride along beautiful trails over our 400 acre property or ride your horse over Interstate 95 on the "horses only" bridge to an adjoining 3000 acres of riding trails. Camping with or without your horse is available. You can also visit the Hewitt's Sawmill Archaeological Site located on a heavily treed 3/4 mile hiking trail. Discover the site of a water powered sawmill that operated from 1770 to 1813. We also rent Governor Caldwell's 5000 square foot diary barn for parties and wedding receptions. You can even get married lake side under a canopy trees. Everything at our museum is real. Not a plastic rock in the place. Come visit us and you will learn some Florida history and you might even carry home a free souvenir on your shoe. Your tour will last at lease an hour but the memories will last forever.

We joined the museum last month under the Ma & Pa category. Living in central Florida and working in this area since 1962 and interested in Florida History I finally stopped here to visit. Stopped by on Wednesday afternoon and we were lucky to encounter our Historical Interpreter Robert Garver. It was obvious that he was totally involved with the... More

A wonderful, laid back way to see how Florida used to be before interstate highways, high rise condos, etc. Great for the whole family--especially the kids. Lots of hands on opportunities.

We've been members for several years (we live in Daytona Beach area) and took some New York City folk for a visit in early January. They were charmed: loved the tame "wild boar" SweetPea and seeing a horse undergoing dental work! Volunteer guide Lisa gave us an extended tour (wagon pulled by tractor) of the old general store, the black... More

This is true old Florida along with cracker cattle, old houses, general store and a barn. They rent the barn out for weddings and parties. A little off the beaten path but worth the trip.

This was an unexpected site for us to visit. when we arrived in mid afternoon we were the only people there, so 'Robert' took us around a portion of the large property. About half way thru the tour he got a call that there were some more people wanting to take the tour, so he expanded our trip for the... More

I am sorry that you were unhappy with the Haunted Trails experience. We had over 2000 happy guests visit with us during the event. The lines were long but that was due to the popularity of the Haunted Trail and the Haunted Barn experiences. We tried to move people though as quickly as possible but we did not want to... More

I visited with my daughter the first time. What a treat. A real farm and ranch in the old Florida style. A fun tour and the volunteers are wonderful. Since our first visit, I have taken many friends. My daughter is now a regular volunteer in the barn and both she and I have learned how to horseback ride here.... More
